Consortium on Individual Development

Special issue

Teaming up to understand individual development

The CID special issue in Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience (DCN) describes the theoretical scope (including our two guiding CID concepts of behavioural control and social competence) and approach of the four different work packages. Finally, the special issue includes a series of empirical papers that demonstrate the available data, and the advanced methods and possibilities of our large (integrated) experimental and longitudinal datasets.

Digital Magazine

Alongside the special issue, we published a digital magazine to communicate the outcomes to a broader audience in an appealing way. In this magazine you will find summaries of all the articles, often accompanied by infographics or clips.


Brief summaries for each paper are provided below, for links to full references see the dedicated DCN CID special issue page.
